Fix Your Broken Market

Postby Fonefixer » March 10th, 2011, 11:09 am

Ok so I did a little investigating, and came across this guide. ... For_Slates

It was designed to repair the market hanging / not downloading problem we are all facing by replacing the Android ID


At the end of this, your scroll will be recognised by the market, as the Android SDK emulator and allow downloading again.

I have now got a fully working Market back on my FW1.01

(Original post by Detection)

Follow the guide to the letter > download the full SDK and system.img > make a new VM > and run the emulator

(I chose Android 2.1 update 1 in the emulator setup, as the guide was written for 1.6)

Copy the AndroidID from the emulator using the commands in the guide

adb shell sqlite3 /data/data/ "select * from meta";

Push the ID from the emulator to the scroll also using the commands in the guide

adb shell sqlite3 /data/data/ "update meta set intvalue='number_from_previous_commands' where name='androidId'";

Install this through CWM (Dont know if this part is necessary but my old market wouldn't work without this update)
Market 2.2.11

Reboot and download from the market

(This does take a little time, but well worth it in the end)

Employees are like mules. Some you stand in front of and coax them along with a carrot. Some you stand behind and kick them in the arse. The key to management is knowing which mules are which!
